  1. Dear Bemina, thank you so much for your query. To apply the NORM.DIST function as well as the arithmetic formula for calculating the Normal Distribution, it is required to calculate Mean and Standard Deviation first.

    The formula we have used for Normal Distribution is:

    The generic syntax of the NORM.DIST function is:
    x = C5 = supplied value to calculate the distribution
    mean = $C$13 = arithmetic average of the distribution
    standard_dev = $C$14 = standard deviation of the distribution
    cumulative = FALSE = Returns probability mass function if the value is FALSE

  3. Dear Jae, You have my heartfelt gratitude. I found your queries quite distinctive and innovative. Yes, you can find out Names based on multiple data. Although there is no single functions in VBA that can extract result based on data, you must apply multiple VBA functions such as SPLIT, COUNTA, OFFSET, IF to get the job done.

    Step 1: Write the VBA code in the module and hit the Run icon.
    Applying VBA Macro to find names based on Multiple Data
    VBA Code

    Sub Find_Names_Based_on_Multiple_Data()
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim words() As String
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim text As String
    Dim i As Long
    Dim j As Long
    Dim countResult As Long
    Set rng = Range("A1:A8")
    Set ws = ThisWorkbook.ActiveSheet
    'Clearing cells of output
    For i = 2 To rng.Rows.Count     'Executing FOR loop to consider each row
        text = Cells(i, 1).Value    'Picking up cell values from A2:A8 range
        words = Split(text, " ")    'Applying Array to split based on space
            For j = 2 To UBound(words) + 2  'Applying FOR loop for column counting
                ws.Cells(i, j).Value = words(j - 2) 'split data based on column A
            Next j
        'Counting column containing text in each row
        countResult = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("B" & i & ":E" & i))
        If countResult = ws.Range("B10").Value Then     'matching column no to Value of B10
            If ws.Cells(13, 1).Value = "" Then  'If there is no  value then write output in A13
                ws.Cells(13, 1).Value = Cells(i, 1).EntireRow.Value
            Else    'If multiple value appears then write below the existing
                ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Value = Cells(i, 1).EntireRow.Value
            End If
        End If
    Next i
    End Sub

    Step 2: Obtain output as follows.

  5. Hello! Peter Atallah, Thanks for the Query. It sounds like you’re encountering an issue with the “Find and Replace” feature in Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise, where you used to see a message box indicating the number of replacements made, but it’s no longer appearing. Here are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot and resolve this issue:
    1. Check Notification Settings: Make sure that notifications are enabled in your Microsoft Office settings. Sometimes, notifications may have been disabled, which could prevent the message box from appearing.
    2. Update or Repair Office Installation: Ensure that your Microsoft Office installation is up to date. Sometimes, issues can arise due to outdated software. If updating doesn’t work, you could also try repairing your Office installation. To do this, go to “Control Panel” > “Programs and Features,” select Microsoft Office, and choose “Change.” Then, select “Repair” and follow the prompts.
    3. Reset Office Settings: If the issue persists, you can try resetting your Office application settings to their defaults. To do this, open any Office application (e.g., Word), go to “File” > “Options” > “Advanced,” and click the “Reset” button under the “Reset” section. Please note that this will revert all customizations back to their default settings.

    Please feel free to let us know the update after trying these approaches.
    Thanks a ton. Have a good day.
